Raphael Varane, Manchester United's defender, will be out of action for approximately a month due to a hamstring injury.

Varane sustained the injury during Tuesday's Champions League draw at Atalanta. He was replaced in the first period.

The 28-year old France international had just recovered from a groin issue and joined United for 34m.

He will be absent from crucial Premier League matches against Manchester City, Chelsea and other clubs.

Victor Lindelof, a fellow centre-back, was not able to make the Atalanta trip. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United manager, now faces a headache when the team visits Manchester City. Harry Maguire has been struggling for form recently and Phil Jones hasn't played in a first-team match for nearly two years.
